‘Ask Pochettino’ – Ex-Spurs defender says he was ‘one of the best trainers’ at the club

Kyle Walker-Peters has claimed he was one of the best trainers during his time at Tottenham and has no regrets about his time at the club. 

The 24-year-old came through Tottenham’s academy and was on the periphery of the first-team squad, but could not make the breakthrough to make the right-back spot his own. 

With other defenders such as Serge Aurier and Japhet Tanganga often preferred in place, he was sent out on loan to Southampton in January 2020, before the move was made permanent at the end of the campaign. 

Now as a regular on the south coast under the tutelage of Ralph Hasenhuttl, Walker-Peters feels he ‘gave 100 per cent’ during his time at Spurs and is confident his former manager Pochettino would back him up on that claim. 

Speaking to Optus Sport, he said: “No regrets, I gave 100 per cent the whole time I was there, if you ask Pochettino, he will probably tell you I was one of the best trainers the entire time he was in charge. 

“I’m in a place where I’m really happy with the time I spent there, and I have no regrets whatsoever.”

Spurs Web Opinion 

Walker-Peters came through the academy, so it wouldn’t be an outrageous claim to say that he was one of the best trainers at Spurs. It is good that he has found a secure and permanent position at Southampton, though, as he has reached an age where he needs to be playing on a regular basis.
